  1. Training Experts: Individuation without Naming Is Worth It

    Cindy M. Bukach, Timothy J. Vickery, Daniel Kinka & Isabel Gauthier

    There is growing evidence that individuation experience is necessary for development of expert object discrimination that transfers to new exemplars. Individuation training in human studies has... More

  2. When Does Repeated Search in Scenes Involve Memory? Looking at versus Looking for Objects in Scenes

    Melissa L. -H. Vo & Jeremy M. Wolfe

    One might assume that familiarity with a scene or previous encounters with objects embedded in a scene would benefit subsequent search for those items. However, in a series of experiments we show... More

    pp. 23-41

  3. Using the Dual-Target Cost to Explore the Nature of Search Target Representations

    Michael J. Stroud, Tamaryn Menneer, Kyle R. Cave & Nick Donnelly

    Eye movements were monitored to examine search efficiency and infer how color is mentally represented to guide search for multiple targets. Observers located a single color target very efficiently ... More

  4. Stopping while Going! Response Inhibition Does Not Suffer Dual-Task Interference

    Motonori Yamaguchi, Gordon D. Logan & Patrick G. Bissett

    Although dual-task interference is ubiquitous in a variety of task domains, stop-signal studies suggest that response inhibition is not subject to such interference. Nevertheless, no study has... More

  5. Global Statistical Learning in a Visual Search Task

    John L. Jones & Michael P. Kaschak

    Locating a target in a visual search task is facilitated when the target location is repeated on successive trials. Global statistical properties also influence visual search, but have often been... More

  6. The Attentional Blink Is Not Affected by Backward Masking of T2, T2-Mask SOA, or Level of T2 Impoverishment

    Ali Jannati, Thomas M. Spalek, Hayley E. P. Lagroix & Vincent Di Lollo

    Identification of the second of two targets (T2) is impaired when presented shortly after the first (T1). This "attentional blink" (AB) is thought to arise from a delay in T2 processing during... More

  7. Parafoveal Processing of Transposed-Letter Words and Nonwords: Evidence against Parafoveal Lexical Activation

    Rebecca L. Johnson & Maxine D. Dunne

    The current experiments explored the parafoveal processing of transposed-letter (TL) neighbors by using an eye-movement-contingent boundary change paradigm. In Experiment 1 readers received a... More
